Out Of The Blue & Into The Black: Sad Farewells & A Moment For Schacht

They give you this, but they gave us Schacht.

Hi there friends of the Emptywheel blog. The collective lost another longtime voice.

It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Our friend Dr. Robert Schacht. Knew him for years online, and then met him personally at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in a bar. Wow. One smart and fun human.

He never burned out, he never came to rust. Bob Schacht will never fade away.

Thank you Bob Schacht.

Vaya con dios and Aloha.

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Tho I agree, you defended Eli--good and bad--far more aggressively.

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Starting where you said the Giants (or, oddly, the iggles) didn't qualify, but the Jehries (or whatev) did?

emptywheel @MeritNotParty It was fun. As I said, I'll link back to this next season if Bravo reups the series.

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Since you missed that entire point the conversation descended into you performing my point perfectly. To a T. Thanks!

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Every single time an NFC fan raise off-point comments to fluff their team? Proved the point. Not a gender issue. Abt surface

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Yes. ENTIRE CONVERSATION was premised on similarities in irrationality and cattiness bt NFC East fans and Real Housewives

emptywheel @MeritNotParty So no. You can't find a link? Thought so. Bravo fodder. Like I said.

emptywheel @MeritNotParty Still waiting for your link where I call you a "girl." Until then you're just Bravo fodder.

emptywheel @MeritNotParty No. No. You have missed the point entirely. But apparently have real gender insecurities.
